Reviews and Ratings

Roger rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This lovely little Pinot is a go-to staple on the Bacchus and Beery patio. Cloudline is well priced and when we find it on sale (sometimes as low as $15), we load up. The wine is fruit forward with very soft tannins with flavors of cherries, blackberries and red fruits.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Sour cherry, sous-bois, and a touch of florality make this a decent Pinot. $22 is a little steep though…I expected a lot more from the vintage and the name. 87 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
One of 10 New American Value Reds Oregon’s Domaine Drouhin steps into a négociant role with this bright, tart Pinot Noir, buying grapes from a variety of top Oregon growers. RI

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
